MLT1D (DF0001004)

MLT1D Long Terminal Repeat for ERVL-MaLR retrotransposon


MLT1D (Mammalian LTR Transposon) has 5 bp TSDs, and it an intermediate subfamily between MLT1C and MLT1E2. Note that a full-length ERV-MaLR (Mammalian apparent LTR retrotransposon) element is derived from an ERV (Endogenous Retrovirus), but only contains the Gag gene (that is, no Pol or Env).
